This Year’s Grid Knitwear

This is the time of year when knits really start coming out of the closets, even in the Grid, where you can consider it summer or winter as you choose.  I tend to pull on coats as we get deeper into November, and also go scouting for good-looking knitwear, in part because I knit in RL and enjoy the look and feel of good knitted clothing.

Since my purse, both in RL and SL, is not bottomless, here is a list of some items I have not yet bought, modeled by fashion bloggers I have read:

Nana Minuet:  Look #180

Harper Beresford:  Soup!, Olive Oil

Lourdes Denimore:  I Got Tagged

Briony Muircastle:  SG and the 10L Golden Fleece

Nadja Baxter:  Nadja’s Style Today

Cajsa Lilliehook:  The Five Oceans in a Bottle, Falling Leaves

Gala Caproni:  LOTD 11 06 11 — Autumn

For my contribution, my second of the season, I decided to visit the Aphrodite Coffee Shop.  (Yes, I know, I was at a coffeehouse just a while back.  Knits and coffee go together.  Besides, I’ve never been there before.)  This place is a beautiful build, Greek-themed and part of a larger complex of shops in the same architectural mode.  I took a pause while waiting for my order to arrive to shoot myself (which you can get by clicking on the table top)….

…and once afterwards as well.  This ensemble comes from Prism, is part of a selection of prints, and shows the same lovely sense of texture by Journey McLaglen that you’ll find in her other knits, such as in her Laura.  This dress also comes with knitted socks, but I decided to wear a set of Maitreya Gold heels, and so that would not have worked at all (unless maybe as leg warmers; hmmm…).
